CONSTANCE RUTH SAVOIE

On January 9, 2007, Connie Savoie (nee Culver) passed away peacefully at Noric House in Vernon at the age of 74 years. Connie was born in Ontario, and lived in a number of areas during her life. She was a resident of the Vernon and Lumby area several times over the years, and was instrumental in starting the “Toy Box for Kids” in 1983. This programme evolved into “Teens Count Too” and Santa’s Anonymous. She was active in literacy

programmes in Ontario, and was a member of the Okanagan Regional Library Board during one period of residence in our area. Connie was predeceased by her husband, Ed, in 1996. She will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her children: David and Tammy Giles, Dawn and Christina; seven grandchildren and many extended family members and a host of friends. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, friends wishing to do so may make donations in memory of Connie to Teens Count Too, care of Sun F.M., 2800 – 31 St., Vernon. Arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home. 542-0155
